Piers BS: Ten Commandments on Public Property? (438* d) RE: BS: Ten Commandments on Public Property? 02 Apr 05


Robomatic, 'We should make a distinction between Socialists . . . [and] Communists'. What cobblers! The words are interchangeable (social/common ownership being the same thing). Whatever some people may say that socialism/communism is. It means social/common ownership, which obviously means social/communal control and free access to goods and services - you can't buy what you already own.

The bureaucratic class who controlled the means of producing and distributing wealth in the so-called socialist/communist countries have a vested interest in calling their version of capitalism socialism/communism. Just as the private class who control the means of producing and distributing wealth today have a vested interest in calling those versions of capitalism, socialism/communism.

Those who think that religion and socialism/communism are compatible are misguided, it shows no understanding of the origins of religion and divisive social role of religion. How can you believe that we can change and control our own world if you believe we are controlled by another?
